J. Murrey Atkins Library Department of Special Collections and University Archives at UNC Charlotte is pleased and excited to welcome Tyler Cline, who started on September 1 in the position of digital archivist. He will be working with manuscript collections, university archives, and collaborating with library IT to develop standards, guidelines, and workflows for managing digital records in all formats.
Previously, Cline was the digital archivist at the American Heritage Center (AHC) at the University of Wyoming, where he developed policies and workflows for ingest and access to digital records. He also managed the AHC’s mass-digitization program. Working closely with Mark Greene, he implemented the principles of MPLP to provide access to large quantities of digital collection material in a timely manner.
Cline holds an MA in public history from California State University, Sacramento, where he worked at the California State Archives to process legislative collections.
